The USA, oldtimers are usually called antiques. The restrictions are determined by state legislatures and thus vary across the country. In Iowa, the minimum is 25 years old, but I don't know that there is an annual miles restriction; could be, though.Depending on the country, it is possible to register the car as oldtimer. Often the yearly tax is much lower. And often the yearly test is not necessary.
Of course there are restrictions, it needs to have a certain age (25, 30, 40 years old), you can't drive it on certain days, a max. amount of km per year, etc. etc.
The Toyota C-HR. But it drives really well, very direct. The team wanted to create a 'Japanese car with European driving characteristics'. Not a bad job but it's expensive. The styling? Those are cars that you love or hate.Nissan Juke. Only surpassed in the ugly stakes by Honda CH-R
It seems James Dyson literally pulled the plug out of the Electric Vehicle project.A bit of a surprise was the statement by Dyson that their new car manufacturing facility will not be in the UK, where their test and research center is based, but in Singapore. The reason given was mainly quality of workforce but obviously Brexit and proximity to the markets 'with money' played a major role.
They will spend 2 billion GBP and expect to have the facility up and running in 2020, with a full operational production of an electric car in 2021. (No, I don't think it will look like a vacuum cleaner.) Since they don't collaborate with any car manufacturer, that amount seems a bit low but we will see.
Weird how things can go. Some years ago, we would have said Apple and Google would be the new non traditional car manufacturers.
